Overview

After it started, nothing would ever be the same again. Millions and millions of able-bodied men were slaughtered or disabled for life in unimaginably sordid circumstances. Women suffered appallingly at the deaths of husbands, lovers, and sons—and their status, by the end of the fighting, had changed remarkably. Nor would it be the war to end all wars, as people believed, for the Treaty of Versailles, so hated by Germany, set the stage for the next world conflict. In a masterpiece of succinct storytelling and vibrant description, Philip Warner leads you through the complexity of the 1914-1918 hostilities: the wretchedness of trench warfare, the controversial leadership, the first use of tanks, and the most historic battles. 270 pages, 30 b/w illus., 5 X 7 3/4.
